CAPTAIN FERGUS GEORGE ARTHUR FORBES
ROYAL IRISH REGIMENT
23RD AUGUST 1914 AGE 32
BURIED: ST SYMPHORIEN MILITARY CEMETERY, BELGIUM
Captain Forbes was killed on the first day of the Battle of Mons, Britain's first engagement of the war. The Earldom of Granard is an Irish peerage but relatively unusually the family were Roman Catholic as Captain Forbe's inscription indicates.
